We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This was my 19th entry for the 30 Characters Challenge. Each day in November I'll be designing and posting a new model (though the prints may come a tad later, depending on how on-the-ball I am). Each character is randomly generated using the Continuum Narrative Engine (a storytelling game system currently in the works here at the Ill Gotten Games headquarters). I'll get the rest posted here as I print them, but for now you can follow the WIP models here...
NAME: Yarp SPECIES: Iolosian Mantle Crab ORIGIN: Mooncliffs of Iolos
Arguably a non-sapient species, Iolosian Mantle Crabs such as Yarp are often employed as pack mules by adventurers forging into inhospitable territories. Left alone, Mantle Crabs are content living peacefully in the cliff-side tunnels they call home. However, once trained, Mantle Crabs often bond to their owners, even protecting them against perceived threats.
Model designed in Sculptris and TinkerCAD
Printed in PLA at a 230 extruder temp, .10 layer height, 10% infill, 2 shells. Assembled with superglue and painted in water based acrylics.
